| Heya folks,|
I'm having trouble with CRC Errors occuring from Archives I download, whether it's ZIP or RAR (perhaps 7zip one's too, haven't had an opportunity to test).
Literally, downloading multiple archives ranging from 10-200Mb one after the other, and any one of them can be "corrupted". It's never the whole archive, it's usually just individual, random files that don't extract successfuly, even after repeated attempts - always the same results after each extraction.
In a current case I have atm, the last 7 files in the archive fail. The 7th before last only half extracts, so somehow the end of the Archive tailed off into nothingness - but this isn't always the case, as explained above.
I should note now, that re-downloading the Archives (Same source again), is the only workaround I have found, which is impractible for long term.
I just updated my WinRAR to the latest version to cover that possibility, also using 7zip and WinZIP make no difference, and there aren't any special characters in the files to get in the way (Japanese characters can be a nightmare sometimes!).
Regardless of where I set the Temporary Folder for WinRAR Archive Extraction (I have several physical HDD's), it makes no difference.
Just been into FireFox IRC, and they say the Temporary folder for the Downloads is the Destination folder, so they are heading straight to a fairly new HDD, ruling out what I thought might be my really old C Drive coughing up bad sectors and ruining things.
Thinking about it, I used a download manager to acquire the last set of archives, and it still failed to acquire them properly; there are not settings for it regarding Temp File Folders either.
I can't believe it's my RAM, it's reasonably new OCZ DDR2 sticks... and it doesn't appear to be my Hard Drives, but where else is the information stored?
Thanks for any help in advance, it's much appreciated :)
(For the record, my system is pretty stable, runs for several days before blue screening on USB driver errors (think it's my Sound card), so RAM definately seems solid in that regard?)
